Praise for Do I Stay Christian?:

“Brian’s new book on remaining Christian knocks it out of the ballpark in terms of framing and naming the questions. I cannot stop reading it. Thank you, Brian!”
Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, author of The Universal Christ

“Any thoughtful Christian has been asking the questions McLaren tackles here, but many of us are afraid to voice them aloud. In Do I Stay Christian? we’re gifted a gentle guide who opens ideas and voices the questions we cannot, naming our frustration, fear, and hesitant hope.”
Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, former Senior Minister, The Riverside Church; Founder, Invested Faith
